                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sorry I missed last week's exciting installment of the DM column.  But I am back
now and STILL champion of you lowly assortment of thieves, beggars, and thieves who
steal from beggars.  Knew y'all weren't that bright.
     Well, I have plenty of political points but my skills are a few short from
finally graduating.
     Lookin' at the standings.  I'm just a guessin' that I'll be fightin' another
computer monster next turn.  3 straight turns and no real warrior to fight?
     Is there no one in this arena to even challenge me???
     Or have they already graduated?

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in KOLACT!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for THE DUELLIST?  
ROGUES GALLERY's proud of him after beating FOOTLOOSE and getting 17 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  FOOTLOOSE got smashed by THE DUELLIST, and lost 11 
points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  THE GRINCH stopped FRIDAY THE 13TH 
dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said KOLACT's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at Don Corleone's?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All KOLACT ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Friday the 13th -- Well, it]s about time I finally beat you.  I hate you.  I kill
you. -- Goldilocks

Tremors -- I love the one hit and quit it gladiators. -- Wizards!

Queen's Logic -- Don't blame me for your terrible fighting skills.  As you can see,
I'm still trying to find a good weapon combo. -- G.I. Jane

Flatliners -- I'm getting tired of fighting for my bacon and eggs.  I think I'll have
steak for breakfast this time. -- Lia Hobbern

The Userous Merchant is going to "do" bacon, either.  He said there's no money in it.
Of course not!  Who wants money in your bacon?  The texture is all wrong. -- Ferrin
Mondor

Tom -- Yes, well, if I'd had those skills going into the fight, things might have
been different. -- Lunelle Merrin
P.S.  Or maybe not.  Hard to tell.

The Userous Merchant again.  I think he must have been eating bad bacon. -- Cresdene
Arct

Maybe we should feed all the questionable bacon to the Captured Orcs?  After all,
they have to eat something. -- Simoon Terrat
